    I'm sorry to hear about this. I got my start with computers with the Commodore 64, and it's strongly influenced the direction of my life ever since.


    Farewell, Jack Tramiel...

    Wow, R.I.P.


    I've been trying to get a C64 on eBay the past couple of weeks, I bet it's gonna get a little harder now.


    Too bad this isn't going to get as much attention as Steve Jobs, this guy is a legend.

    He carried the popular-face-of-home-computing Torch after 'Uncle' Clive Sinclair left the stage. I think he was one of the most frequently seen faces in computer magazines, gaming & 'serious' for many years.
